    Not too long ago a rule was put into place regarding promoting members of battalions, the regulation was set in place by Jog because certain commanders were making their friends high ranks and mass promoting lots of people.

    The problem is to promote someone you have to wait 4 days now, meaning if I make someone CLC I have to wait 4 more days to make them CC, 4 days is not that bad, rank for rank but adding up each rank if you got promoted every 4 days it would take you 24 days to become Captain. That is the least amount of time it would take to reach that rank, which is a little under a month. No new player who works hard and is really good want to wait an entire month just for a chance to become a captain.

    I dont see why if someone is very good on the battlefield they cant be promoted whenever the commander chooses, If I am the commander of the battalion I should have jurisdiction over promotions. If I promote a friend to Battalion Commander and he does a bad job he could very easily be removed and I could be demoted during a commander meeting, not that hard.

    to sum it all up simply, I think the restriction is absurd and should be removed, all commanders should be able to run their battalion how they see fit.

    -1 The restrictions are so people can prove themselves instead of getting instant high rank

    What if it isn't to battalion commander. Maybe LT or something.

    again the same thing would apply, if the promoted person does a horrible job, it would be addressed at our commander meeting and the commander would probably get introuble.

    That is adding extra steps. These restrictions make it so no one becomes an unfair rank for even a day

    trying not to argue too much, but I am not implying people should mass promote, the problem is if we do like 6 events in 1 day I can only promote someone for 1 event it pretty much voids all the work they do in the other 5

    Edit: can you pm me anything else cause I dont really want this to be clouded with you and me discussing

    In 501st it takes a lot longer than a month to get something like 2nd Lt, let alone Captain. I don't think having to wait 4 days is that bad at all but at the same time I don't like putting restrictions on other commanders. IMO if a commander is doing poorly like mass promoting his friends to high ranks then talk to him during a commander meeting and punish him individually. I don't think we need to put a blanket rule that restricts every battalion

    +1 I think this should be removed, I mean it happens in staff where people skip right up the chain. I don't see why this 4 day rule was added, if someone deserves a rank then they should get it. Not have to wait 4 days.

    +1 Commander should be able to lead and do the decisions in the battalion.

    Commanders should be able to have full control have there own battalion. I don't think the restrictions should be a requirement. Just something to be brought up in commanders meetings when promotions are actually stupid.

    +1 Remove them

    Shouldn't it be Paradyce's decision because he is server director?

    Well as you know everything in today's world is 2/3rds majority agreement. So founders = 2/3rds, high staff = 2/3rds (on certain situations) In this case it would be paradyce and I, along with founder affirmation
